Big news for Loudoun County — and the Ashburn Farm community specifically. The Burn has learned that the well-known Korean BBQ brand Honey Pig is exploring its first location in the area.
Honey Pig BBQ is reportedly coming to a 4,200 s.f. space in the Ashburn Farm Market Center — what locals often call Junction Plaza. It would be just a few doors down from the Naygoya hibachi restaurant.
This is just the latest in a wave of Korean BBQ restaurants opening around Loudoun County. The style of dining — where the customer cooks a variety of meats and proteins on a burner in the center of the table — has been popular elsewhere in the DC area for years.
Honey Pig is one of the better known names in the KBBQ game. According to its website, it has six locations in the region, including three here in Northern Virginia. It also has two restaurants in Texas.
The menu at Honey Pig is like that of other similar restaurants. Platters of meat are the focus — including pork belly, ribeye steak, beef brisket, bulgogi, shrimp, squid, and more.
Sides include soups, rice and noodle dishes, and mandu — Korean dumplings. You can check out the full Honey Pig menu below.
As we mentioned, Honey Pig is just the latest in a series of Korean BBQ restaurants planning to open around Loudoun County. Others include:
- Khan Korean BBQ & Bar coming later this year to Countryside Marketplace in Sterling
- Kiwa Korean Grill coming any time now to the Cascades Marketplace in Sterling
- Plus, an as-of-yet-unnamed Korean BBQ restaurant slated for the Gum Spring Village Center in South Riding.
- Of course, Gogi 92 Korean BBQ at the Village at Leesburg got a head start on the rush when they opened in 2021.
